A roaring romp through the idiosyncratic nature of British country life, this novel-populated with a cast of eccentrics in the traditional British mold-follows the fish-out-of-water story of Muriel, a 50-something woman jaded by city life, who inherits an Elizabethan manor from a man to whom she is vaguely related. Dogged by her London acquaintances-including a worthless son and daughter-in-law, a drunkard lover, and Princess Matilda, a fictional daughter of George VI and the Queen Mother-upon her move, Muriel must endure the chaos of country life in hopes of finding her own personal happy ending.
